PSP - Gundam Vs. Gundam Next Plus (Update 3)

Here are some updated MS info from the official PSP GVG Next Plus website... with the ones shown here being my current favorites. I have to say I wasn't that excited about this game after the release of Gundam Senki UC0081. That game still currently rules my PS3, and will be there for awhile (even Batman: Arkam Asylum has to stand aside for now). And quite honestly, I haven't been using my PSP for gaming for a quite awhile, but just using it to watch videos on my bed (currently rewatching Densha Otoko..... Hermes MOE! LOL)

But as I find out more about the upcoming PSP GVG Next Plus... I am getting more excited. The most interesting addition over the original arcade game is the "Next plus" mode, that allows the player to use a team of four Gundams to tackle a series of missions, carrying them over during the campaign and acquiring experience that will allow him to customize and improve his mobile suits. The best part, though, is that this mode will be available even as a cooperative mode, allowing 4 players to connect over the ad hoc network and play the missions together.

And there is a couple of updated controls for the Next Plus version:

Shield block: by pressing down on the D pad only Mobile suits equipped with a shield will be able to block the incoming attacks with it. Useful because some attacks cannot be evaded in any other ways than by blocking or putting a building between oneself and the attacker.

NEXT Dash system: similar to Boost Dash, but allows to actually chain another attack after it, if used well can lead to devastating combos.

Also, a few more details have been revealed that gigantic mobile armors will be included as bosses in the Next Plus mode, and the game will also include Mobile suits exclusive to the PSP version of the game: the Gundam Wing Zero Custom and the Gundam Nataku from Gundam Wing Endless Waltz, the 00 Gundam and the Ribbons Gundam from Gundam 00 and the Unicon Gundam from the new Gundam UC series.

The above info was enough to have me sold on buying this game. Dec. 3rd...bring it on!

Finally, I had looked forward to this kit for a long time. But looks like I won't be able to get this one in time for my Bday for sure, most likely until late December, since the HG Jegan took just as long to get here (almost 2 months after release).

An American Salaryman in Tokyo has started a nice WIP for this kit, check it out.
